"End Of The Road" 2021 date:

Jul. 17 - New York, NY

Earlier on Saturday, KISS revealed that the last concert of its "End Of The Road" farewell tour will take place on July 17, 2021 in New York City.

"End Of The Road" kicked off on January 31 in Vancouver and will resume on November 16 in Perth, Australia.

KISS's current lineup consists of original members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons, alongside later band additions, guitarist Tommy Thayer (since 2002) and drummer Eric Singer (on and off since 1991).

Formed in 1973 by Stanley, Simmons, drummer Peter Criss and lead guitarist Ace Frehley, KISS staged its first "farewell" tour in 2000, the last to feature the group's original lineup.

This past summer, Stanley told The Sydney Morning Herald that "End Of The Road" was KISS's "victory lap. It's us celebrating everything we created with our audience and with our fans," he explained. "It's that time for people who've been with us over the years to come and celebrate all that we've had together. There's people who've never seen us before and they're leaving the show and thinking, 'Why didn't I come to this earlier?' It's terrific.”

Asked why he thinks KISS has endured this long, while other bands have fallen by the wayside, Stanley said: "People who experience KISS really are affected by it in a way that goes beyond it being a rock band. It's fascinating and amazing to be at these shows nightly and see parents and grandparents who want their offspring to experience what they experienced. It's far beyond typical rock bands, where you hate the idea of your little brother being there, or your neighbor. KISS is an amazing tribe and it's incredibly gratifying."
